I've been in my own world keeping quiet starring at my ultrasound for quite a while now...


“Aloha, I am 21 years old and had my first abortion today..... I've been in my own world keeping quiet starring at my ultrasound for quite a while now. I feel so numb and dead inside. The father of my child has been so abusive towards me. I was in the shower this morning waiting for my mom to pick me up and take me to my appointment. He turned the shower off mid of me washing my hair, dragged me out by my hair... pushed me against the bathroom sink which took the breath out of me, called me a "WHORE WHORE WHORE WHORE", threatened to kill me AND my mother. Told me he wished I would just die. Choked me and I tried stabbing him with my stupid toothbrush.

3 people then called the cops and he then was waiting outside for my mom... I had to call her and tell her to wait down the street because I was scared with what he'll do. Cops then showed up and escorted me to my moms car and asked to arrest him since it was the 5th time they were called to that address for him. I denied the arrest. I was left with short breaths, bruises all over both arms, bruises on my neck, and a few cuts on my fingers.

All that persuaded the last bit I had to go along with the worst decision of my life. I never wanted to do this to my first child i conceive. Some young men will never understand that heartbreak women go through to make this decision. EF ABUSIVE RELATIONSHIPS.”
